Smoke Detector Testing

Codes and standards require functional tests to introduce (simulated) smoke through the detector vents and into the sensing chamber. The Solo 330 dispenser is the most popular device for achieving this, benefiting as it does, from a cup big enough for the great majority of detectors but still small enough not to be obstructive and unwieldy.

Detector Testing Aerosols


Approved all over the world, our Solo smoke aerosols (used with the Solo 330/332 dispensers) deliver smoke particles to the detector under test replicating the conditions of smoke from a fire. Our range of smoke aerosols has recently increased to allow continued use of our Solo 330/332 dispensers in full compliance with latest regulations.

Heat Detector Testing

Using the unique IR activation and Cross Air Technology, the Solo 460 heat generation process takes place only when the detector under test is within the cup with hot air blown horizontally in a focussed beam directly toward the sensor for optimum energy use and results. Interchangeable NiMH battery batons and a fast battery recharger enable testing all day with a cable free professional device.

    Detector Removal and Cleaning

    Detectors need removal and replacement for various reasons. The vast majority are fitted on bayonet mountings and the task can be done using specialist tools fitted to appropriate access poles. Using such specialist devices saves the time, cost, disruption and risk to safety that ladders, scaffolding or access gear represents.

    Solo A7 Detector Duster

    Detector cleaning is a specialist activity that involves more than just a wipe and a blow. An inherent part of it is, however usually the clearing of dust or other solid contaminants. The Solo A7 been developed specifically for this purpose - with a particularly high velocity burst and non-flammable formulation.

      • Non-flammable
      • High velocity output
      • Simple to use
      • Non-abrasive

      Telescopic Access Poles

      Solo 100/101/108 Telescopic Access Poles

      Access poles are required for detectors out of normal reach. Their use saves the time, cost, disruption and risk to safety that ladders, scaffolding or access gear represents.

      Pull-wound glass fibre construction provides non conductivity with an optimum strength to weight ratio and high tolerance manufacture ensures minimum possible whip or bend at height relative to weight and cost. This, coupled with the simple locking mechanism of the telescopic sections means that these access poles combine ease of use with design and manufacturing excellence.

      • Optimum strength to weight ratio
      • Minimum possible whip or bend at height
      • Certified non-conductivity
      • Available in one, two or four telescopic sections
      • Simple locking mechanism and easy to use
      • Outstanding quality backed by lifetime warranty
      Note: These access poles are suitable for use with both the Solo and Testifire range of detector testing products

      Detector Testing Kits

      Solo 808/809/810/812/822/823 Testing Kits

      Solo testers are available either as separate components or as complete kits – configured both by height and application. The price of complete kits is usually less than the sum of the component parts.
